was talking about to manage overproduction. it was during the clinton administration after the u.s. joint the wto that the very controversial 1996 farm bill passed. that is a legislation that completely did away with the remaining new deal protections and it deregulating what had already begun in the 1950s and stopped all government intervention in commodity markets and eliminated all the final -- of the programs like the grain reserve and the most immediate result after that bill passed, those of you who are old enough, it was called freedom farm:farmers quickly started calling it freedom to failed. the most immediate result of the legislation was the dramatic increase in the production of commodities. all of the programs that kept the marginal land out of production which is really good for the environment were now being planted from fence row to fence row. by 1999 the price of corn was 50% above 1996 levels. fifty% below 1996 levels and full was down 41% and farmesoy was down 41% and farmers were in major economic distress. lobbying and policymakers didn't address these problems by rei
on secretary clinton's recent testimony before congress, it is clear that the state department and the department of defense are already consulting on this review. the secretary of state's accountability review board focused on the need to ensure the state department puts greater focus on high-risk, high-threat posts as well as posts where the host nation, despite having the will to protect diplomatic facilities, does not have the capacity to protect them. in some cases, these posts are located in countries where the department of defense and the state department have assistance programs with similar objectives. these are perhaps areas where the two departments can explore whether additional collaboration is appropriate. during secretary of state clinton's recent testimony before congress, the emphasized the importance of properly resourcing u.s. africa command, afrikom reached full operational capability less than five years ago, and has been in what's called an economy of force effort to date. the events of last september race questions about the adequacy of resourcing with r

bill clinton signed into law the family and medical leave act. you know, there are many laws that we pass here in washington that most americans never have reason to know or care about. the fmla, by contrast, has changed this country in profoundly important ways. it has touched the lives of millions of working families. it's almost hard to imagine today but 20 years ago, before this landmark law, workers had to risk their jobs and their livelihoods when family needs arose. there was no national policy for maternity leave or paternity leave. new mothers were sometimes compelled to return to work just days after giving birth. or to quit jobs they would otherwise have liked to keep. there was no law allowing someone to take leave from work to care for an aging, potentially dying parent or to care for a child with a serious illness. families had to leave their loved ones in the hands of others or quit their jobs and face dire economic consequences. there was no policy to allow a seriously ill worker to return to work after recovering from cancer or other serious health condition. all of

democrats. it is coming. obviously clinton and obama late out at least their initial thoughts. none of the three laid out enough. i have written speeches how we should get out in the interest of time, i will go to your first question, general david petraeus. on the face of those selections by secretary gates they were ok, general david petraeus was a very impoverished general, very smart general, he knows that area. secretary gates and the president deserved the commanders that they want to. in my 12 years as senator i only loaded against one cabinet nominee and unless the cabinet nominee is so bad and so beyond the ability to resuscitator rehabilitate i always give the president the benefit of the doubt. the president deserves his team. general david petraeus is a good choice. got remember something about the army or the service. the foreign service like many of you, the war is not general david petraeus's war, it is the president's war and the military, all the people who work in the government follow the policy of the elected civilian government. they can give their opinions and

back in the clinton administration they brought in -- is going to organize task forces, organized the entire economy and decide what goods and services we would need 20 years and so it could be planned to create them. hillary clinton him up with a very complicated health care plan which eventually ended up of course more unless being passed 20 years later by the obama administration. the obama administration also believes that its experts know that what we need in terms of energy is green energy. so we're going to channel a lot of resources to green energy companies. but it's not just democrats that do this sort of thing. i was writing this morning about how the state of virginia has been trying to centrally plan the love lives of virginians for 100 years. they tried to keep the mentally feeble from reproducing the they tried to keep people of different races from marrying. now to try to keep people of the same sex from marrying. and in all these cases it really is, we experts know better than these people who should marry, who should love, how people should live. we've got a gove
. the really big event actually happened in september 1999. bill clinton who was president at the time made it mandatory, he said, okay, freddie mac and fannie mae. you have to have at least half your loans and affordable housing. that was a very dramatic announcement because of the size of fannie and freddie. an article in "the new york times" identified the involvement in this issue. freddie and fannie were so vague that there is no way they can meet this goal without reducing lending standards. so if they had achieved that goal, they would be taking so much risk and that could happen and they are so big that they could take out the whole u.s. financial system. nine years later, it happened. when they fail, they owed $5 trillion and they had $2 trillion in subprime mortgages. even before they failed, they were leverage 1000 to one. that means they had $8000 of that for every dollar. so the only way to do that is if the government guarantees your debts, not exactly what was going on. this is something that is way underestimated. you have the dominant player and has over half the market dri
senator kerry and senator hagel to senator -- then-senator hillary clinton and bob gates. by that standard both the new nominees lack gravitas. they're not independent thinkers, they have no track record of either legislating in an intellectual sense or advancing important ideas on military affairs or interor national politics. international politics. but the underlying cause, i would say, is it's a reflection to have president's lack of interest in these issues. >> anybody else? >> yeah. i've got another pet phrase to introduce into this discussion. the republican party is now focused on trying to be responsible about what kind of fiscal environment we leave to our children and grandchildren, which i think is good in general terms. and so we're very worried about the deficit. and what kind of deficit we're going to be leaving to our heirs. there was a national security deficit that is growing and that will continue to grow. it's a particularly american conceit that the world goes away or stops when we stop paying attention to it. the fact of the matter is that the problems that we see in
. president clinton has pointed out that the power of our example -- the power of that example in the world has always been greater than any example of our power. that was the way bill clinton described it. and when daniel webster said that our founding fathers had set before the world an example, he went on to say this -- and i quote -- "the last hopes of mankind therefore rest with us. and if it should be proclaimed that our example had become an argument against the experiment, the knell of popular liberty would be sounded throughout the earth." i've spoken before about this small globe of ours, the light of dawn sweeping each morning across its face, lighting cities and cottages, barrios and villages. and across the globe's face, people coming forth from homes and hovels into that morning sun. each knowing from our american example that life does not have to be the way it is for them, knowing that an example of liberty and self-government stands free before them. that america stands as an alternative and a rebuke to the tyranny, to the corruption, or to the injustice in which they may b
, 2011, according to a letter secretary clinton sent to me in august, 2011. i worked toward approval of the keystone x.l. pipeline, first as governor of north dakota and now as a u.s. senator because i believe it is just the kind of project that will grow our economy and create the jobs our country so desperately needs, and it will do so with good environmental stewardship. at the same time, it will reduce our dependence on the middle east for oil, which is what the american people have desired for decades. the keystone x.l. pipeline project is long overdue. for the benefit of our economy, our environment and our long-term energy security, president obama needs to approve it. now, without further delay. mr. president, i would ask unanimous consent for just several minutes on another topic in regard to a recipient of the medal of honor from my state of north dakota. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. hoeven: mr. president, i rise today to honor one of our nation's true heroes, army staff sergeant clinton romashay. on monday, the president will present sergeant romashay with
of cnn who together have a wonderful interview with clinton yesterday. thank you. over to elise. [applause] we have a lot of distinguished guests in the audience. the deputy chief of mission for the embassy of lebanon. a lot of people who care about syria and looks to be a lively discussion this evening. in august, 2011 secretary of state hillary clinton called for the president bashar al-assad to step down for the sake of the syrian people. at that time about 2,000 people were killed. today that number of u.n. estimates has risen to more than 60,000 syrian is dead, hundreds of thousands of refugees have fled to turkey and jordan and iraq pleasing burdens on those countries, close to 2 million more, more than half have been displaced inside syria. what started as a brave stand has moved into a civil war with opposition forces becoming more radicalized, some of them would say infiltrated by extremist forces with links to al qaeda. the conflict threatens to destabilize the entire region and become a battleground for the proxy war some might say of competing interest. the and ratio
thing i worry about is the threshold. go back to 1998. president clinton launched missiles based on the intelligence from the embassy blown up in east africa and launched missiles to afghanistan. they hit target and if you had asked any of us in the room the next morning whether america was in war, i trust that all of us would have said no. we fired the missiles but we're not at war. if you asked people near the impact of the missiles they have a different view. and so the danger is it can potentially lower the willingness to use force and not think of it as a war. and yet you build up enemies. you build up people who think they're at war with you. when did al qaeda go to war with united states and the average answer is 9/11. al qaeda declared war against the united states in 1996. most of us didn't get the memo. but they attacked the cold, the attacked east africa. they were at war with this. there's danger when one side is at war and the other isn't. the danger of the technology is that any time you can sit back and do something to somebody else, you don't necessarily feel. if
happened on september 9th 299. for bill clinton, president at the time made it mandatory, although it's gone back two years and he said okay, freddie mac and fannie mae, to government-sponsored enterprise have half-year loss of affordable housing, i.e. subprime lending. that was a germanic announcement because of the size of freddy and fannie. there was an article in "the new york times" identified the risk involved in this issue in a sad lesson, freddie and fannie are so big that there's no way they can meet this goal without radically reducing mining standards and home mortgage business. for legitimate affordable housing market is not that big. if they achieve that goal, they'll take so much risk that freddie and fannie can get in financial trouble and that could have been in 10 years. they are so big they can take out the whole u.s. financial system. nine years that have been. we have $5 trillion had $2 trillion in subprime mortgages. even before they failed, they were leveraged 1000 to one. that means that a thousand dollars in debt. and it's like having a net worth of $10,000 in
to take this opportunity to also appreciate the outgoing secretary of state, the inimitable mrs. clinton has been an ally and partner uncertainly viewed very well in pakistan as the most important and powerful diplomat representing the united states views abroad. we welcome john kerry because pakistan has john kerry as the architect -- one of the architects of the kerry lugar berman legislation, which has been instrumental in broad basing this relationship and anchoring it and we hope they longer and more sustainable multifaceted relationship. we also know it's not a relation as well as political parties. we work and we hope to work with every senior policymaker in the united states as well as congress and of course senator kerry has emerged from those ranks. so we look forward to working with them and i don't think we need to speak to anyone. he has pretty much spelled his policy agenda and i'm sure he has a great deal to address as he takes this important and challenging time. >> one for me and i'm a loop around the table. as you know, foreign minister today talk of the council on fore
is the threshold. quÉbec in 1998. president clinton who launched tomahawk missiles based on the intelligence from the embassies brought up in east africa in a lunchtime hot missiles in sudan to afghanistan and they hit targets. if you have tenuous in the next term the next morning for work, all of us would've said no. we fired some tomahawk missiles were not a word. if u.s. people near the impact of this tomahawk missiles, they'd have a different view. so the dangerous it can can lower the willingness to use force cannot think of it is water and yet you build up people at war with you. when did al qaeda go to war with united states? the average answer is 9/11. al qaeda declared war against the united states in 1996. most of us didn't get the memo, but they attacked the cold come east africa. they were at war with us. there's always a danger when sunset is at war in both ways. so the danger in all this technology in cyprus got the same potential. anytime you can sit back in relative safety and do something to somebody else come you don't necessarily feel it. if your son or daughter is going into t
that was not addressed in the fact the clinton administration and the bush administration they did nothing to rein in the fannie and freddie which mr. bush could have done with his secretary and reduce the mandates from over 60% that they wanted subprimal mortgages. this is what caused the collapse and right now fannie and freddie are making it more difficult to get a mortgage but they are going through the fha. the part of the problem is not that we don't have enough regulation or whatever, it's that we don't have good regulation. we don't have people enforcing those regulations. >> guest: peter raises a lot of interesting points and you have to keep coming back to the cause of the financial crisis. you are right the agency certainly played a part in the financial crisis and the subprime mortgages played a part. one of the parts the was played in the financial crisis was excessive pay. it was paid that was encouraging the companies to take risk and that is why it is important for us to do the reports that we did. i will give you a perfect example. you had loan officers at the banks who were being
secretary treasury in the clinton administration tells a story about killing and beating up with larry summers. the administration wanted to give money to subsidize school construction. if anything sounds like an expenditure item it is financing school construction, and the issue was that the tax paper said we really should add this to the tax code. larry summers was saying, the only way we can get it, they jiggered fancy school construction bond that was a deduction and all sorts of ways to make this a tax cut rather than a spending increase because they thought they could get it through congress that way. that is part of what is going on is this gaming of whether something is a spending and more tax cut leading to a lot of distortions which are separate from the issue over the you want to do the particular subsidy or the particular item in question. >> to you want to weigh in? >> in our annual report remade the complexity of the cut the number one most serious problem for taxpayers. we made the point that one person's loophole is another person's lifeline. it really just been some pe
. it's all the numbers. bill clinton said it's all about the reference checks. it's all members. right now is such a small, slim majority. the house works on the majority, 50% 18 votes come to hundred 18 votes control. so, when you have on the party lines the public devoting one way and democrats the other come if you get a group in the middle but says that's not good for america or the next generation. it's not who we are as a people, the court doesn't take many, 20, 30, maybe on congress. now let's go over to the senate. and the reason that we take 60, our founding fathers basically wanted the minority to have the same amount of input as the majority party and it's true the democracy. the works that way. it hasn't worked that way because we can't get by procedural, get a vote to the floor because we are in such turmoil but if that happens, you have 45 republican, 55 democrats it takes 60. is only takes a swing and gillmor of 15 people one way in the senate to make it happen. you bring that out and i guarantee you the leadership can count numbers and they know when they don't have 60

[laughter] i thought i'd tell you about them. he really weighed in when i was trying to pass the crime bill in 1995. he supported more police on the street, the limitation on the size of ammunition clips, the ban on assault weapons, and governor, you would be -- he would be proud of you today. but it was a little another section of the bill which provided more funds for young people in troubled neighborhoods to engage in positive activities and things for kids to say yes to. and then he wrote me a bunch of letters over a period of three years basically saying i hadn't done enough on that. one letter coauthored with distinguished african-american professor, charles, another and al sharpton and ed koch saying that it was imperative we give young people who had gotten in troub

it was under president clinton when we balanced the federal budget, balanced the federal budget. we actually had surpluses. and our economy was growing, job growth, moving in the right direction. well, our revenues have dipped to about 15% of our economy, so we're not anywhere near with as much revenue as we need in order to have a balanced approach that allows for job growth. and yes, our spending is too high, particularly on what we call the mandatory side. we agree with that. you look at our health care costs in this country, they are much higher than any other nation in the world, and we don't have the health results that would demonstrate why we're spending so much more. we need a more efficient system. that's why a lot of us supported the affordable care act because we see in it delivery system reform that will make our health care system more efficient, bring down the cost of hospital care by reducing readmissions, bring down the cost of hospital care by reducing hospital infection rates, bring down the cost of high-cost interventions by dealing with people with complicated multiissue
